Aggressive Negotiations Come to Star Wars: The Card Game

August 20, 2017

Across the Star Wars saga, the alliances and friendships between characters have formed some of the most memorable pieces of the story—just as much as the epic conflicts between adversaries like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. When you can rely on your friends, there’s no limit to what you might accomplish. Now, those alliances become more important than ever before. Aggressive Negotiations, the second Force Pack in the Alliances cycle for Star Wars: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

The Aggressive Negotiations Force Pack continues the major themes of the Alliances cycle, bringing the ways that affiliations can work together to the forefront of your attention. With ten new objective sets (two copies each of five distinct sets), you’ll find new ways to use many decks, whether you’re focused on capturing your opponent’s cards or unleashing the power of the Wookiees. With recognizable characters such as 0-0-0, BT-1, and Chirrut Îmwe and two new fate cards entering the game for the first time, there are plenty of new alliances that could give you the edge as you play out your conflicts in the Star Wars universe.

August 20, 2017

The original Master of Orion (MoO) computer game released in 1993, creating the 4X video game genre and capturing the attention of strategy loving gamers for over 30 years. The Master of Orion series has been featured on numerous “greatest games of all time” lists; several retrospective reviews from such established gaming media sites as GameSpot and IGN regard MoO as the standard by which turn based strategy games set in space are judged.

This iconic series was most recently rebooted by WG Labs as Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars—featuring immersive gameplay and garnering a nomination for the 34th Annual Golden Joystick Awards 2016 PC Game of the Year.

Now tabletop gamers can also “Conquer the Stars” as Catalyst Game Labs has inked a deal to publish a stellar series of games based in the storied Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars universe. First to arrive will be the galaxy crushing dueling deckbuilder: Master of Orion: Conquest.

“WG is proud to partner with Catalyst Game Labs to deliver the universe of Master of Orion to tabletop gamers with the first product; the Master of Orion: Conquest dueling deckbuilder game,” stated Michael Buonagurio of WG Labs. “The wealth of experience Catalyst brings to the project will now deliver this venerable and loved video game to a new audience of gaming communities.”

“Anyone who has ever lost a large piece of their soul to a 4x game understands their appeal,” said Loren Coleman, Owner of Catalyst Game Labs. “And Master of Orion rates among the best. Focusing on fleet engagements, Conquest brings X-termination to the fore!”

If that weren’t exciting enough, every game includes a code that allows you to receive the Revenge of Antares Race Pack for free if you purchase Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars!

August 6, 2017

August is an exciting month for Warpath fans, as it sees the release of brand new hard plastic vehicles from Mantic Games.

Whether it’s the Enforcer Interceptor soaring over the battlefield, or the heavily armoured Forge Father Sturnhammer rumbling across terrain; the introduction of vehicles promises to open up a totally new dynamic to Warpath.

These releases will be some of the most affordable sci-fi vehicles on the market, once again ensuring Mantic’s reputation for offering great miniatures at a fantastic price.

In Warpath, you take command of entire units, as you plan your tactics to claim strategic objectives and carve a path to victory! The game has been designed to play massive sci-fi wargames on an epic scale, with 100s of miniatures lining the tabletop, but the intuitive rules ensure gameplay is still exceptionally fast and fluid.

From August 4th, Mantic will be adding the following vehicles to its range:

Sturnhammer Battle Tank £24.99/€34.99/$39.99

Armed with a main battery of Heavy Hailstorm Cannons and clad in armour capable of withstanding all but the most powerful and well-placed blasts, the Sturnhammer inexorably carries the might of the Forge Fathers to war.

Drakkar APC £19.99/€24.99/$29.99

The Drakkar’s sloped, reinforced armour makes it one of the toughest troop delivery vehicles on any battlefield anywhere. With a Hailstorm anti-personnel weapon to discourage any assailants along the way, the vehicle is an extremely safe and reliable transport for platoons of Steel Warriors and Forge Guard.

Hultr Half-Track £14.99/€19.99/$24.99

Powerful engines and adaptable treads allow the Hultr Half-Track to react to the flow of battle fluidly, supporting the Forge Father lines with its Hailstorm or Magma Cannon.

Accuser Interceptor/Persecutor Bomber £24.99/€34.99/$39.99

The Galactic Co-Prosperity Sphere’s most advanced military demands equally advanced air support. The Accuser and Persecutor wings fulfill this task faultlessly, claiming air superiority for the Enforcers below.

Arbiter Interceptor £29.99/€39.99/$49.99

The Arbiter swaps the Accuser’s Burst Lasers in favour of twin Polaris Cannons, delivering a heavy punch against armoured targets in swift ground-to-air strikes few enemies can counter.

The Ennie Award-winning transhuman science-fiction RPG setting returns, in a brand new edition for use with the TRAVELLER roleplaying game! This brand new 384-page hardback book includes:

THE FAR HAVENS is a campaign pack supplement for your Mindjammer game, providing rich setting detail for an exotic polity far beyond the Commonality frontier, above the galactic plane, which fiercely resists the inexorable advance of the event horizon probes. Join the Licensed Free Agents and the New Traders: explore this perilous frontier, and fight the machinations of the Commodus sentience and the rise of ancient powers…

In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise fell on the lands of humankind… It is the far future. Our civilisation, and its glorious technological future, is gone. Only rusted ruins and tunnels beneath the ancient cities hint at what once was. In the Chronomancer’s Tower, a young apprentice stumbles upon a secret which will change the world; an ancient evil, little more than a fairy tale to frighten children, is real, and threatening to return. But is everything what it seems? Wheels turn within wheels, and political machinations wrought by selfish men and women bring the world to the brink of devastation. Can Iago and his unlikely allies unravel the knot in time, and fathom the mystery of… the Worm Within?

New Euro-Fed Spaceships Available From Brigade Models

ReleaseWave2

July 30, 2017

Brigade Models brought out the first wave of their resculpted EuroFed spaceships in time for Salute, but this only replaced a small part of the existing fleet. T

They have now re-released a pair of capital ships, new versions of the Liberté battleship and Cerbere light carrier. These two have changed in design more than some of the other new models, being based on a similar hull that has the same design styling as the Milano and Umberto. At the other end of the scale they also have the diminutive Comète starfighter, tiny but with an amazing amount of detail for something so small.

The release also includes a fleet pack containing a Liberté and a Cerbere along with escorts, fighters and bases.

SFS-400 – Liberté class Battleship – £6.00
SFS-411 – Cerbere class Light Carrier – £6.00
SFS-460 – Comète class Interceptor (pack of 12) – £1.50

SFSP-401 – EuroFed Fleet Pack #1 – £22.00
